With the Apoth/Vindication and the Dodge This/Signal Seven/Dragonblight mergers, as well as VJ's ongoing recruiting, it seems that it's time to welcome 25 mans back to Gnomeregan!

Here's to great things to come!

In my experiene, mergers go one of 2 ways.

1. Things go great for about 1-2 months, then one little thing happens and all sides involved point fingers at the other side and it all blows up.

or

2. You get in that first week and regret it ever happened.

But, best of luck to all. :)

Interesting points but in 2009 Death and Taxes and Aurora merged and you know what guild they formed ? Vigil. One of the top guilds :p

Likewise, the merger into Dodge This has been relatively painless. We're only a couple of weeks into it and already 12/12 and 1/13 with our 25 group. This week we're getting some work in on H-Magmaw and H-Chim. Hopefully, things continue to go as smoothly as they have been.

I think I've heard some stuff that pwnhammer might be going 25's as well. Firelands should be a lot of fun.

With your triple merger did you have to recruit/pug a few people when you switched to 25's or did you guys have straight up enough to do them all in-guild?

We've had more than enough people show up every night. Enough such that we're able to swap people based on who needs loot off of what boss, and we're also able to replace anyone who unexpectedly disconnects (or any of the other random things that could lead to a player being afk for an extended period of time). Perhaps this is because we merged three guilds instead of two, or maybe even because the Alliance side of this server is much more populated than the Horde side. Either way, it's pretty awesome to never have to fret about a person not showing up on a given night, as there is now always an adequate replacement at the ready.

I'm also really looking forward to Firelands. While I'd enjoy getting more of the heroic content down beforehand, the new raid tier should be quite fun.

What is most amusing is that Shinobars has taken it upon himself to become the new forum-figurehead of the Dodge This creation. Shinobars, of all people. It's safe to assume an election wasn't held, unless they ruled in favor of whoever earned the least amount of votes.

Shino may not have been elected as the new forum-figurehead, but he's doing a great job nonetheless of articulating the atmosphere at Dodge This. Getting back to 25's, instead of multiple 10's, has worked well for our guild, new members and old.

Mergers are never easy, but we were very fortunate with the Cornerstone / Deviance merger that formed Dodge This and we're trying to apply what worked and our lessons learned in making this new merger turn out just as successful.

We just went 2/12 Heroic 25 last night (Magmaw), and 'hope' to get Heroic Chimaeron 25 tonight. So, so far so good.

Word, we skipped Magmaw heroic and probably shouldn't have. We're currently working on Chimaeron heroic as well.

Wednesday night's 25 was a bit rough, but we made some adjustments and came back in last night and got Chimaeron heroic as well as Atramedes heroic. We didn't have the aoe dps for Maloriak (yet) but we had the same problem on 10 man until people learned to adjust. So, we switched to normal and cleared out the rest of the instance. Overall a solid raid night.
